Ridley's film debut The Reflecting Skin caused a sensation at the 1990 Cannes Film Festival and went on to win eleven international awards

Set in the Idaho farmlands of the 1950s, the film follows eight-year-old Seth through a mythical summer where reality is heightened to the level of an hallucinogenic, quasi-fantasy

The second screenplay in the Collection is The Passion of Darkly Noon, a modern fable echoing the surrealist style of Ridley's dazzling and innovative debut film

It portrays a young man roaming the American countryside, the victim of a savage attack on his religious cult

He's finally rescued by Callie

For whom he develops a dangerous obsession ...


"Provocative, shocking and disturbing, a true original ... a masterpiece" - What's On

"Philip Ridley is a singular writer, a prolific polymath, probably a genius, and the creator of some of the most peculiar, grotesque and compelling British plays (and films) of the last several years" ~ Time Out
